Bus tip to make your life easier

The holiday travel season is upon us, and Creative Bus Sales is here to help with Bus Tips. Whether you’re a first-time shuttle bus traveler or an old pro, we have plenty of advice when it comes to making your travels easier. Here are three suggestions for riding airport shuttles for those hectic times getting to the airport from your home, or from the airport to your hotel. These few tips might save you both time and money during you holiday travel.

  1. Packing

Understanding the space you have in you shuttle and where storage for large things will be key. Don’t pack too heavily or have tons of luggage pieces to try to manage while getting on the shuttle. While a shuttle driver may help you with getting your luggage on the bus, you’ll want to make your trip as manageable as possible. Bring suitcases that are easy to carry on and off the bus, with handles that are ergonomic.

  1. Plan the Logistics

Will there be a courtesy shuttle ride from the airport to your destination? Will you need to schedule the bus ride in advance? Call ahead and ask about transportation in the area. Make sure you have the logistics planned for a seamless trip to and from the airport. Some shuttle buses have a set schedule, while others require reservations in advance. Know what the bus will look like, and where to wait for it at the airport will help to relive the stress of travel. Keep your bus pass and other travel information close at hand in a purse or other types carry-on luggage.

  1. Tip Appropriately

It’s generally considered a good idea to tip your shuttle bus driver at least a buck or two. You’ll want to tip more if your luggage is embarrassingly cumbersome. Use common sense when it comes to tips to ensure your shuttle bus driver feels appreciated, even if the shuttle is free. This might be the last thing on your mind when exciting the shuttle so have the tip ready when you arrive to your destination.
